Not even a mention? Handling of complaints re: sexual harassment[edit]

Should this article not at least mention the CBC's handling of sexual harassment complaints, re: Jian Ghomeshi? CBC has been the focus of much media coverage in this respect, most recently yesterday.

e.g.

  • From the Kathryn Borel article: Borel was critical of the CBC for its handling of her initial complaint about Ghomeshi's behavior. "When I went to the CBC for help, what I received in return was a directive that, yes, he could do this and, yes, it was my job to let him," she told the assembled media representatives.[14] The CBC apologized to Borel publicly, on May 11, the second such apology by the Corporation. In a statement, head of public affairs Chuck Thompson said, "What Ms. Borel experienced in our workplace should never have happened and we sincerely apologize...".[15] Peter K Burian (talk) 13:24, 12 May 2016 (UTC)
Be WP:BOLD and add a short discussion. I would argue that you might want to read WP:RECENT and WP:NPOV, but a paragraph should be added. Walter Görlitz (talk) 14:41, 12 May 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for your note; I have added a section about the criticism of the CBC's handling of sexual harassment complaints. Peter K Burian (talk) 19:31, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

Inadequate source[edit]

Source number 11 seems to no longer exist. I think there is something wrong with the link. I also think it would be worth mentioning that there are 3 board of director seats that haven't been filled. Faf120 (talk) 05:57, 9 April 2017 (UTC)

References that no longer exist is an easy problem. The most common solution is to see if you can find the source, as I did. I googled for broadcast act Canada and found the page. I updated the reference. We also have an article, Broadcasting Act (1991), that links to the current act. If I could not have found it the article, we mark it as dead using {{dead link}}.
As for the board of directors, if you have a source that supports the statement, add it to the article where it discusses the board. Walter Görlitz (talk) 15:56, 9 April 2017 (UTC)
